DEI 401: A Board’s Impact on DEI
December 14 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
The National Council of Nonprofits defines a Board’s responsibility being “to steer the organization towards a sustainable future by adopting sound, ethical, and legal governance and financial management policies, as well as by making sure the nonprofit has adequate resources to advance its mission.” Research from McKinsey, PWC, and others show that organizations that have diversity in their leadership are more likely to outperform their peers. Yet, it is more than just diversity of people that makes an organization perform at its best.
Author and DEI Expert James Mckim will explore how nonprofit boards can ignite the performance of their organizations by embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion for themselves and their organizations.
By the end of this session, participants will:
• describe how diversity, equity, and inclusion can impact your board;
• describe how your board can ensure your organization’s leadership, structure, and programming is equitable and inclusive;
• identify actionable ideas for improving your organization’s performance through DEI.
